Armed with a new CD, First Name Basis will continue to travel and play whenever, and wherever they can, be it a 40-minute warm-up set or a 3-hour multi-set rock n roll marathon. Although the band seems to do best with the college crowd, their infectious sound has been well received by listeners of all ages. Singer Kelley M. Kauth and Guitarist Tate Troelstrup help to further spread the music of FNB by performing shows as an acoustic duo in many smaller venues and coffeehouses everywhere. From day one FNB has found that having fun doing something you love while working hard to achieve your goals is the right formula for success. FNB Guitarist Tate best explains this attitude - "Regardless of a venue's size or location, we go all out on every show to play our best, give people a high energy performance and work with the venues to promote and make the show a great experience. We pride ourselves on doing the little things necessary to promote the band and build a fan base in each town we go to. It's always nice when we walk away from a gig knowing that the band members, the fans and the club had a great night..."
First Name Basis is group of well-versed musicians who truly take pride in their craft, not a band to fall victim to the jaded attitude of so many veterans of the industry, FNB looks forward to spreading their unique sounds in the studio, and more importantly, on the road, for many years to come.
